Music composer and singer Anu Malik, who was judging the reality singing show Indian Idol Season 10, was suspended on Sunday by Sony Entertainment Television amid allegations of sexual misconduct.
Multiple women have validated the allegations against Malik. The latest person to support the charges is Alisha Chinai.
“Every word said and written about Anu Malik is true,” the singer told Deccan Chronicle.
She added that she stood by all the women who had finally spoken up, and hoped they could now find peace and closure.
Alisha also commented on Malik’s behaviour and said, “Iss haiwaan ne apnon ko bhi nahin baksha (this beast didn’t spare even his own). Shweta Pandit, who disclosed her horrific experience with Malik, is the niece of composer duo Jatin-Lalit. Malik has two daughters and all these years he has been preying on girls his daughters’ age. Many of them were attacked in his house with his wife and daughters present.”
Recently, former Indian Idol assistant Danica D’Souza opened up on the issue and said Malik had an image of a ‘tharki’ and that when her colleague went on to narrate the incident to the production house, everyone turned a blind eye.
